Project: Evaluation of the residual lifetime of concrete structures by means of optical fiber sensors.

project duration
01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-01
The following topics need some exploratory research: multiplexing possibilities of optical fiber sensors, the possibilities to handle the huge amount of data obtained by (remote) monitoring of civil engineering structures and characteristics of earthquakes. The purpose of the research project will be the prediction of the remaining lifetime of different structures under all kind of different loadings based on the obtained monitoring data. A management system needs to be developed in order to get a scheme of maintenance and repair that is scientifically and economically justified.
